I never even liked gazpacho until I ordered it in Seville, Spain about 7 years ago. Likely story, I know. But it’s true! 

I just feel like there’s so many not-so-good versions of this soup – and when it’s bad, it’s really bad. But apparently, when it’s good, it’s also really really good 😉.

I was in a little restaurant in the streets of Sevilla – and being in Spain, I felt like I had to at least try some gazpacho. And then I fell in love, finding out just how GOOD it could be when it was made right.

So when we finished our meal with this most epic gazpacho, we had to ask for some clues as to how they made it. Our waiter smirked – I’m sure because he’d been asked this question hundreds of times before by tourists, AND because I’m also pretty sure this was the type of place that doesn’t really HAVE recipes. But even though there were no direct measurements or instructions given, he did tell us what the ingredients were, and so I held on to that information and the sublime taste in my memory like my life depended on it.

Something about fall always makes me want to stay in and make weekend breakfasts at home instead of venturing too far out of the house for the first meal of the day – staying cozy inside wearing pajamas till noon and noshing on some seriously delicious breakfast just fits with all the fall vibes.

The recipe that I’m sharing with you today is perfect for that. Perfect for your epic (yup I said it) weekend.

To be clear, it’s not so much a recipe for the pancakes themselves (that part I’m going to let you use your favorite recipe for) but for what goes IN and ON them.

These are dressed-up-weekend-ready savory pancakes, if you will 😉
